Born Free Brochure

We had a great time at the 12th Born Free Pride in the Park Ball this weekend, which raised over £20,000 for the Born Free Foundation, a charity which we’re very proud to support.

The event was organised by long-term ambassadors of the charity, Val Hackett and Mike Carey and hosted by Born Free’s founder, Virginia McKenna OBE. We were amongst 200 guests that attended and enjoyed a three course dinner, dancing and a swinging Sinatra tribute act at Pride Park stadium.

We supported the event by designing the evening programmes and MD Dawn Foote donated TWO weekends in her campervan – The Ginger King Camper - raising over £700 for the charity.

Well done to our Virgin London Marathon runner!

We want to say a huge well done to Dawn, Katapult’s MD who completed her first Virgin London Marathon on Sunday in 5hrs 29 mins; as you can see from the photo above taken in the last two miles, she was holding up pretty well though very emotional by this time.

Though she says she enjoyed the whole experience (apart from  the training), we know that Dawn was ultimately spurred on by the possibility of what the funds she has raised will do for the endangered species charity REACT that she is supporting. By way of congratulating Dawn, you can still donate to the charity on her fundraising page and help her achieve her target. Find out more about The Red Endangered Animal Connection Trust.

We are very proud of Dawn and think that first large glass of wine on Sunday night was well deserved after 6 months of following a strict teetotal training plan and 6 am runs.

Has Dawn caught the marathon bug?! She has vowed that she will only do it again if another member of the Katapult team runs with her; watch this space….!
